Who We Are

We believe that delicious plant-based eating will change our world. So we lead the way forward in crafting unexpectedly satisfying food made with mindful ingredients, always considering how we will feed generations to come.

We go all out to earn our place on daily menus with plant-based nutrition that delivers delightful flavor. To ensure that everyone can gather around the table—food-allergic, flexitarian, vegan, and everyone in-between—sharing meals made with respect for the planet, a commitment to quality, and a love for every bite.

Our Story

Friends for over 20 years, Daiya’s co-founders Andre and Greg shared a passion for music, creativity and a plant-based lifestyle. This same passion inspired them to create delicious dairy-free food made entirely from plants and Daiya was born.

It started with a simple belief: plant-based living was better for our health, better for the planet and better for animal welfare. As it turns out, Andre and Greg weren’t alone in their dream. Millions of others were wishing for greater access to delicious plant-based food.

Their hard work and perseverance paid off and Daiya Cheddar Style and Mozzarella Style Shreds debuted in 2009 at the Natural Products Expo West. Consumers raved and plant-based dairy-free innovation changed forever.

Today, as plant-based food grows in popularity, that spirit of innovation continues to inspire our team at Daiya. We believe in pioneering plant-based breakthroughs that delight people and planet. Our portfolio of great tasting foods provide an opportunity for everyone to gather around the table—food-allergic, flexitarian, vegan, vegetarian and everyone in-between—sharing meals made with respect for the planet, a commitment to quality and a love for every bite.

The Daiya table is a big one and we invite everyone to dine with us.

— Michael Watt, CEO
